Thank you nycjadie and Juki! :thumb: Just to clarify, these two slabs are purchases, not submissions. I have never submitted a Predator vs Magnus TPB, but I have found a couple of TPB’s in the wild. I have submitted several raw copies of the regular and painted Q&W #1, only to score 9.6 or lower grades. facepalm

Great books Michael. Two of the best non pre-Unity books to be able to add to a collection. Magnus vs Predator TPB is a ghost in 9.8

Has anybody seen raws in better condition? If you have one, submit it, and I will gladly pay you 50x what I paid for this one if it comes back in 9.8!

That is funny, Steve. :lol: I was surprised that I won it and I was fully expecting to get outbid.

NO ONE can beat this!!!

Marvel Spotlight 5 ~ first appearance of Ghost rider cgc 3.5
Ghost Rider 1 cgc 6.0 first series

Out of a rubbish bin!




























Thing was it was my rubbish bin!


Oh yes, oh yes indeed.

Some of you may know, about my fear of my collection getting donated, binned ~ or just lost. Manly due to my in laws dying and seeing very valuable items donated, binned, or sold for peanuts.

We my wife was clearing up, and decided to put some boxes in the bin. On of those boxes was a recent delivery back from cgc via scotts collectables. It was a very large box, heaps of packaging. In the very bottom I had left the two comics above with foam above it, and then filled the box back in with other packaging.

I was wondering if I was going to sell them or not, now I know they are going, along with alot of other items.
I think this is the second time I have found comics in the bin, or another rare item.

What is common, for lego as an example. the packaging gets thrown away! I now store the lego packaging in a place she cannot reach.
I wish their was a Spinal Tap comic, and I had a copy CGC graded at 11.

to give my wife some credit, she did find my missing issue of TMNT adventure s issue 3 of the first mini in my son's bedroom.

I then sold the set for £120.

it's not all bad.
I wish their was a Spinal Tap comic, and I had a copy CGC graded at 11.
